    A few sentences


    I've got problems with the phrases below:

    1) (Aкpoбaтикa) paвнo кaк и мoгyл (oчeнь тpaвмиpyющaя дисциплинa)...
    What does the bold phrase mean?

    2) B этoм сoсyдe нaмeшeнo в нyжныx пpoпopцияx.
    Is this participle derived from "нaмeшaть"? Shouldn't it then be нaмeшaнo with stress on "e"?

    Re: A few sentences

    1) I don't know what 'мoгyл' is but it's clear from the sentense that it is a noun.
    'paвнo кaк и мoгyл' means 'as well as mogul ' (I assumed here that the word for 'мoгyл' in English is written in a similar way as in Russian but of course it can be wrong)

    2) 'намешано' is participle from 'намешать' and 'намешено' is participle from 'намесить'. You are right about the stress, it's on the second syllable in both cases. When you use 'намешено' your attention is more fixed on the fact that the substances are mixed and when you use 'намешано' it is more fixed on the fact that there is more than one substance.

    I guess there's something omitted in your sentense, it doesn't sound completed to me. Or maybe it shouldn't be taken out of context.

    Thanks a lot
    Actually, this могул interested me the most. If you say that there's no such a word in Russian, it must be a mistake.

    I'll give the full version of the second sentence:

    И всего-то в этом сосуде намешено в нужных пропорциях.

    Will that change anything?

    I think it refers to Mongol or Moghul (Indian 16th century+ mongol). Mongols do have a reputation of being good acrobats/fighters/horsemen etc., don't they? Athletic figures, they are.

    The last sentence sounds like something from Star Wars, I noticed...

    The word for Mongol is Монгол.

    A quick rambling search pointed out that Могул is actually a form of freestyle skiing.

    Yeah, I should've mentioned that I took this from a text on freestyle skiing...
    Thanks!

    But could you explain the difference between фристайл and могул? And mark the stress on tha latter?

    I think I would use намешано.
    I found that in a dictionary:
    намешать - to add while mixing
    намесить - to prepare by means of mixing (kneading)
    That also makes me lean towards намешано.

    Могул.
    mogul
    A hump of snow created by many skiers turning in the same spot. In freestyle skiing, though, the moguls are artificial.
    moguls
    One of the three competitive disciplines in freestyle skiing. Each skier descends a course containing high-speed turns and covered with large bumps, or moguls. Two jumps have to be executed during the run. Scoring is based on the speed of the run, technical quality of turns, and the form of the jumps.

    Mogul is the plural nominative in Arabic for Mongolian warriors who attacked the Abassids..

    Anyways, what about that myth of the two warriors? Gogol and Mogol or something like that?

    Oh my god I'm so totally off topic
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    In Russian, гоголь-моголь is a kind of milk shake

    И бежит Айболит к бегемотикам,
    И хлопает их по животикам,
    И всем по порядку
    Даёт шоколадку,
    И ставит и ставит им градусники!
    И к полосатым
    Бежит он тигрятам,
    И к бедным горбатым
    Больным верблюжатам,
    И каждого гоголем,
    Каждого моголем,
    Гоголем-моголем,
    Гоголем-моголем,
    Гоголем-моголем потчует.


    К. Чуковский

    Гог и Магог, actually are the enemy nations that will come before the DOOMSDAY. In Islam they are something like "Judge and Madjuge".

    Гоголь is very famous Russian writer of XIX c.

    Гоголь-моголь is sweet drink made from eggs and milk.

    "They were both", exept the fact that Babel was Jewish in origin and also wrote in Russian.
    The "gogol" in Ukranian means "a drake" AFAIK.
    But since Gogol wrote in Russian and NOT in Ukranian (besides, he lived in S.-Petersburg for some time and communicated with Pushkin), he is Russian writer. And one of the best. I think he is the best in prose.

    Гоголь жил на Украине, но писал на русском языке. Потому он, собственно, русский писатель.

    Бабель жил в Одессе, которая больше русский город (по составу), чем украинский, хоть и находится на Украине. Писал по-русски. Но про евреев. Так что фиг поймешь

    Дорогие мои англоязычные друзья, ну не мучайте себя "Мертвыми душами". Начните хотя бы... ну я не знаю.. ну например, со Стругацких. Помрете вы с "Мертвыми душами"... и ничего не поймете... а потом будете крутить пальцем у виска, показывая на русских )) Я не в обиду это вам говорю, просто рекомендую...

    Да, я читал Куприна, но почти умер!!! А Куприн вообще-то пишет понятным языком. Почти умер, потому что все эти балы и аристократия мне очень скучные. Я увидел книгу русской литературы в букинисте, может быть я ее куплю.
